Julia Barretto was a guest on the podcast of Angel Dub recently to share how she has been in the past few months.
Angel — who is also the same person who helped the Kapamilya star’s spontaneous travel to South America back in 2019 possible — delved into the issue of discrimination towards women who choose to become housewives.
According to Julia, it has always been a dream of hers to have a family of her own early in life.
“If I’m being completely honest kasi, I’ve always dreamt of, you know, having a family early on in life. Like that is always a thing growing up. Like I always wanted to have a family at a young age ‘cause I wanted to have a lot of time. And I wanted to grow together with my family that you know, I will have in the future,” the 23-year-old actress told Angel.
After hearing about the story of Angel’s friend, who laughed at another woman for choosing to take care of her family rather than pursuing a corporate job, Julia defended homemakers and added that it has always been a dream of hers to become one.
“A home creator is not an easy job. I dream to become a housewife. There’s like a boss housewife, you got your own work going on, but you know, your number one priority is [your kids and your family],” she said.
Agreeing to Angel Dub’s thoughts about housewives having little to no sleep at all for doing everything they can for their families, she said: “It’s not an easy job. But you know, I’m so proud of this generation.”
Julia went on: “Like our generation now, our time now, like you’ll see more husbands and more men really praising their partners. ‘Cause they really witness in their every day lives how challenging it is to be a homemaker, to be a wife and to be a mom at the same time.”
The Kapamilya star went on to say that while some may still experience discrimination, she believes a lot has changed in the way men view women when it comes to gender roles.
“You have to take care of your spouse, you have to take care of your kids without forgetting yourself at the same time. Like we’re in a time na where men and like everybody else are more appreciative. They praise women now because they see na Oh it’s more now, they see it more now. They understand how difficult of a job it is,” Julia commented.
